2,700-hp, $1.7M Corvette-inspired superboat is glorious lunacy

There is no replacement for displacement, whether you're on the road, in the clouds or bursting across wide open water at 180 mph. That's exactly what you could do if you had a cool $1.7 million laying around and felt like making the 2012 ZR48 MTI your very own. The boat features a pair of 1,350-horsepower turbocharged Mercury Marine V8 engines strapped into a carbon fiber hull. That's all run-of-the-mill tech for the superboat crowd, but what sets this craft apart from the fleet is its complete Chevrolet Corvette interior.

Why transplant the worst part of one of the best performance buys in the automotive market into your million-dollar boat? Probably because you can. That, and odds are you won't be relaxed enough to look anywhere but down the bow when this machine is at wide open throttle. The ZR48 MTI features seating for six and a spiffy custom trailer designed to haul the craft on its side (the machine is too wide to be transported right-side up).




KP on here worked in Destin this past summer and he said he saw this thing a few times at the docks. (the pic of it by docks in the gallery is by Harbor Walk(?) in Destin)

More pics in the link.

Nope, wouldn't have bothered me a bit. Just would have pulled me away to babysit when I have hundreds of other things to do. Glad you changed it quickly enough.

MTI had one of their other race boats come through Huntsville last year:
